Thermo Fisher Scientific Events at AMP 2015

We'll be offering three workshops on next-generation sequencing (NGS) for clinical research at the upcoming Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.

And, Thursday, November 5, learn more about the work of leaders in the field of genomics and their efforts towards advances in precision medicine.
